In Table 1 of Feindt et al. (2013), the p-values for the dipole fit method were calculated incorrectly. While the χ2-function was fully minimized for the real data, it was evaluated on an inadequately large grid for the simulated data. As there were no errors in the χ2-values of the real data, the best-fit values are unaffected.
The correct p-values are listed in the table below. Since we observed fluctuations in the results between runs using 5000 random realizations, we increased the number of realizations to 250 000. The main conclusions of the paper are not affected by the changed numbers, because the main result of this method – that there is no evidence for a backside infall behind the Shapley Supercluster – remains the same. The higher p-value in the third redshift bin (0.045 <z < 0.06) does not contradict this observation.
We would like to thank Jeppe Trøst Nielsen for bringing this error to our attention and confirming the corrected numbers.
